Becoming An Effective Tool For Transmission
Q: Sadhguru you said that if realization is what you seek, don’t worry, it’s taken care of if you have come in contact with me. My question is what can we seek more than realization?
You know, they said “atma gnanam athi sulabham.” That means “realization is the simplest thing.” It is very simple, but the technologies of holding on to your body, the technology of how the body is created and how you can sustain this body without certain parameters which are necessary to sustain the body on a normal basis, that takes enormous understanding, involvement, intelligence, application, sadhana.
And you can become an effective tool in transmitting realization or become a possibility for another person’s realization only if you have technology. For example, let’s say we get you a Ferrari. You already know how to drive and have been driving a Maruthi. With a Ferrari, it will skid around a little bit initially because of the kind of power it carries, but in a day’s time or in a few hours, you get the feel of it and then you are screaming it. And if you have this stupid intention that you want everyone to have a Ferrari, you want to build Ferrari in Coimbatore, that is a different level of involvement. You got one as a gift and you drove one, that is different. Wanting everyone to have one takes a completely different level of involvement.
It is only in that context that I said, if you are just seeking realization, just wait. But if you are seeking to become a tool, if you are seeking to become a means and a process for many other people, it needs a different level of sadhana. Why we created brahmacharies and sanyasis is because we want to form a group of people who could become a tool in future, if they handle the situations right and give themselves completely into these processes. And in turn it can be carried from generation to generation as a very effective tool in a live condition – not as information or in a book – but as a live thing which cannot be distorted. When it is experientially alive, there is no question of distortion.
